Scanner - Colofon & Compendium 1991-1994


Recommended Posts




"Rimbaud has been a mainstay on the UK electronic scene for knocking thirty years, releasing cassettes as Dal Au Set and The Rimbaud Brothers back in the 1980s. 1993′s debut LP Scanner remains his (no pun intended) calling card, a dense collection of ambient music and glitch stitched together from intercepted radio signals and snatches of disembodied speech. Since then, he’s released in excess of 30 CDs, collaborated with Colin Newman in alternative supergroup Githead, and had productive sidelines as a visual artist and commercial sound designer."


"In 2010, Rimbaud rifled through his enormous archives, containing material dating all the way back to 1977. In his words, “the result, over 600 hours of largely unreleased material, was overwhelming to say the least, and that was only the edited highlights, as we never touched any material prior to 1991″. Selected works from this process will now be collected on 22-track set Colofon & Compendium 1991-1994."


"The collection will focus exclusively on Rimbaud’s scanned telephone works, and will feature unheard sketches, fragments and experiments. Much of the material is avowedly unfinished, although some “may have reappeared in altered forms on future releases”. The set also collects a selection of short pieces originally commissioned by James Lavelle for Mo’Wax.Colofon & Compendium 1991-1994 will arrive on Sub Rosa on October. The collection will be available on 2xLP gatefold and CD digipack."
